Exploration. Fun. Performance. And a great desire to take and leave towards the horizon. The identity of this bike leaves no room for doubt: just looking at it, it brings you into the atmosphere of Dakar racing.
Equipped with a 21-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear wheel, the new DesertX is designed to handle even the most challenging off-road terrain. Dedicated off-road development combined with Ducati's road expertise result in a responsive and maneuverable bike that is at ease on all types of trails and asphalt.
DesertX presented a completely new challenge to the Centro Stile. The opportunity to experiment with a new design language, seeking inspiration in the history of African Rally.
The result is a solid, clean, modern design, based on shapes taken from the most adventurous off-road world. It is a bike that wants to be solid and functional at the same time.

We worked by drawing on the best of our knowledge in terms of ergonomics, engine, aerodynamics and electronics. And we developed a new specific chassis for off-road.
DesertX is functional, a 'sport tool', competent, technologically advanced and effective like all Ducatis.
DesertX was developed for the most demanding off-road, and therefore has all the essential contents for this type of use: spoked wheels, 21'' at the front and 18'' at the rear and generous ground clearance. Thanks to the various homologations obtained, DesertX has various types of tires available, up to those dedicated to the off-road world.
Take your wildest dreams and make them come true. Bring some friends and get ready to enjoy the adventure of a lifetime.
DesertX will take you all the way.
Antoine Méo had a blast as he took the DesertX through the Bassella Race in Catalonia and the entire crowd fully enjoyed seeing the epic show from the first to the last lap.
The bike has such a strong identity that, for the first time, we decided to design a dedicated apparel within the Ducati Centro Stile. We named it 21/18.
Get ready to go for your next adventure, discover the exclusive garments dedicated to DesertX.
DesertX is already very complete with standard equipment, but can be further enriched thanks to a wide range of accessories dedicated to off-road or touring use.
For the first time on a Ducati, we also have an 8L rear tank, a truly functional and evocative accessory that increases the bike's range by over 150 kilometers.
The transfer of fuel from the rear tank to the front tank is suggested to the rider through the dashboard when the front tank reaches a sufficiently low fuel level. It can be easily activated through the handlebar controls.
Also available are the homologated Termignoni titanium silencer and the racing exhaust, also produced by Termignoni, which reduces weight and further improves the performance of the bike thanks to the dedicated mapping.
